Be the best, Be the very best (2)


Nothing precious comes cheap, To be good will cost you something, to be the very best will cost you everything you have – Philippians 3:7-11, 2 Corinthians 12:11.

The law that what you sow determines what you reap is not limited to agriculture. It is a universal law of life. To reach the top, you must sow time and effort. To be number one you must sow the most. To remain number one, you must sow beyond limit. – Galatians 6:7, 2 Corinthians 9:6.

If you stop sowing, you will stop reaping and very soon you will eat up your harvest. That is why the one who stops making efforts starts declining. Those who stop scattering stop increasing. – Proverbs 11:24, Isaiah 55:10.

The world is always rotating, never standing still. if you stop moving forward you will be moving backward. If you stop rising, you will start declining. If you loose your spot as number one, you will soon become number two, then number three and so on. Before you know it, you will be completely out of reckoning. – 2 Samuel 11, 2 Samuel 12:1-12.

Science has shown that what was thought to be the boundary of the universe a few years ago is now completely false. The size of the universe was grossly underestimated. Don’t make the sky your limit. Your limit should be heaven itself. – Philippians 3:12.

When man reached the moon, there was rejoicing. But now, man has placed rovers on Mars. If you have reached the moon, praise God, but please don’t stay there. Press on. Go on to Mars. And after you have reached Mars, press on still. – Philippians 3:13-14.

It takes a few days to reach the moon, but it takes four and a half years to reach Mars. Stop wasting your time. Invest it in greater exploits. Daniel 11:32

Consider smart phones. Once upon a time, it was a status symbol to have an iPhone 2. Today, who cares for an iPhone 3 or iPhone 5 when iPhone 6 plus is around! Very soon, iPhone 6 plus will be out of date. You must always better your very best. – 1 Samuel 2:1-5, 2 Samuel 5:10.

A man who used to do exploits is an ex-champion – a relic. A relic is someone who is no longer relevant. – 1 Samuel 6:14

There is a world difference between the stadium and the museum. While thousands flock the stadium to watch current champions. few people visit museums to see relics – ex-champions. Be a star in the stadium. – 1 Samuel 17:1-51.

There is a world difference between gold and silver, between first and second. An ounce of silver goes for approximately $20 while an ounce of gold cost more than $1,200. Gold is at least 60 times more precious than silver. Don’t aim for 2nd, go for gold. – Deuteronomy 28:13.

There is nothing wrong in being down right now provided you are on your way up. Don’t stay down, get up and start climbing. 1 Kings 19:4-8.

The only time you are allowed to lie down is when you are resting. The purpose of which is to regain strength for moving on and for climbing even higher. – Mark 6:31

Wisdom is the principal thing and so is diligence. You will never find a wise man that is idle or lazy. After all, it is diligent who rules the lazy; it is the diligent that stands before kings. Most importantly, it is the diligent who receives the best medals from God himself.

There is nothing as terrible as being down when you used to be up. The ex-champion’s greatest sorrow comes from the fact that he knows that those downstream drink the water that those upstream have bath in.
